MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – A disputed worker contract ratification vote at the General Motors plant in the Mexican city of Silao must be rescheduled to take place before August 20, Mexico’s labor ministry said in a statement on Monday.

The original union-led vote in April was scrapped after officials flagged “serious irregularities” in the process, prompting the United States to request a review of potential rights violations.

Mexico’s labor ministry had originally ordered the re-do vote to take place in early June.
